Celestina

I was in the jungle.
I was doing calisthenics deep in the jungle
with my puppet-master.
He told me: Be apologetic,
so I moved back to the Midwest,
raised a family of six, and ate
nothing but pork
for three years.
A few months earlier
we had become lukewarm
toward the Stars Wars movies.
I can never apologize for that.
